Grant Burwash: Would like to know more about what your using for a hand load. I have a number 4 mk1 long branch. I would like to load for it. Have you chronyed yours?
Doug Wells: The Red Ensign was the Canadian Flag in 1950 not the Maple Leaf Meats logo
John Edwards: Excellent shooting I couldn't do that with my Longbranch No4 mk1* but then that's about my ancient eyes more than my rifles accuracy.
ZFlyingVLover: 2 inches at 200 yds prone????!!!!! Dang man. I gotta get me one of these
Snapshooter zeroeight: You will get much better accuracy with a 174RN flat base bullet. .303's love a meaty bullet 39.5 grains of reloader 15, H4895, or Varget gives the mil spec load.
storm476: lots of them aaround
the best bolt gun ever made
3OCALM1: They are fairly easy to find.
stonedimaculate1983: i gota find me one of those. i want a wwii one like my grandfather would have used
Fred B.: Very nice video! And a great tribute to our boys! Didn't expect that........:)
3OCALM1: I've had it since 1996. I bought it at a gun show.
BLuecoLLarcanuck: Nice condition it's in, too. Where'd you buy the rifle?
Robert Vindevoghel: Thanks!
fucku2guy: no now go away you frog
skaaltel: POI is 12-16" high at 100 yards. Aim center of mass and you will still hit. Or aim for his crotch. ;)
NormanMatchem: 90. Deducted 5 points for needing a tool to disassemble the bolt, and 5 for only dual locking lugs. I would deduct another 5 for .303 British being rimmed, but that really doesn't bother me. Other than that, it's the fastest bolt action you'll ever find, with generally the highest capacity, and diehard reliability. 1-2 rounds per second, 4-5 seconds to load 2 5-round clips, and accurate to 800-1000m? What's not to like? The smoothness and capacity is the envy of all other military bolt actions.
fortaaron: so when the apature sight is down its supposed to be for 300 yards? how would i aim it if i wanted to shoot 100?
fortaaron: if you buy a new rear peep sight for them will they still shoot right? i have the big hole Mk.3 sight and i want the small hole one, if i put one on will it effect it?
Charlie Wilson: Nice rifle! I have a 1950 all matching Long Branch myself. I believe 1950 was the last year of production at Long Branch, giving them a little extra collectors value. I haven't shot mine past 100 yards yet though, but it shoots TIGHT at that range!
mikelagaffe: thanks for that, mate
3OCALM1: Marstar in Ontario might have parts.
In the US try Springfield Sporters or Numrich Gun Parts Corp.
